    We have also added a new service that tells us what keywords brought you here from a search engine. It is very informative, but somewhat frustrating. Here is why:

    We will see your search term and realize that is not fully covered, or discussed at all, on our pages. We will then go and create information related to that search. Unfortunately, there is no way to contact you to tell you that what you were searching for has later been added to Lawzilla.

    Feel free to send us an email to let us know what you are searching for so that we can reach you. Please confine the issues to California law, and keep in mind that while some issues can be addressed quickly, others may be extremely complicated requiring much research before the new information can be added, and this is not a substitute to retaining an attorney to discuss your situation.
